Visiting yachties, Don, Tom and Len, after their relaxing dive in Flying Fish Cove.

This week on Christmas Island, Flying Fish Cove was host to eight of the 29 Oyster yachts signed up to sail the world in the second Oyster World Rally 2017-19.

Starting on 15th January 2017 from Antigua, this 27,000 mile circumnavigation, taking over 27 months and comprising four connecting stages, participants are exploring the Pacific and Asian islands, including Christmas and Cocos Keeling!! Follow the adventure.

Whilst not all sailors are divers, we managed to take a few of the yachties down below to see what was underneath their moorings. After having dived in Tahiti, Vanuatu and the Great Barrier Reef, these divers were amazed by the health and vibrancy of our house reef.

“That was awesome!! Those clams were huge and the visibility was just stunning”, Don commented.

We also had a crew of 5 from UK, David, Tom, Linda, Deb and Hugh, joined us for our half day boat diving tour, around the coast to Thundercliff Cave. All were stunned at the incredible diving offered here in the middle of the Indian Ocean.

From all of us at Christmas Island Wet’n’Dry Adventures we wish you a Bon Voyage and hope that you will visit us again one day.
